Sellling a handgun?

I have a nearly new handgun I'd like to sell. I want to do this responsibly and not see it fall into the hands of bad guys.
I don't imagine dealers will offer as much as a private sale. How does one go about this?

from the internet..so you can just advertise and sell.

SECONDARY SALES
Are background checks required on 'private' gun sales? Partial

Colorado - No state requirement that criminal background checks be done on people buying firearms through newspaper, internet or other advertisements or "on the street." Criminal background checks are only required if the buyer goes to a federally-licensed gun store or purchases a firearm at a recognized gun show. Aside from gun shows, all "private" sales between individuals are not subject to the background check. Also see: Gun Shows.

once you find a buyer, you could use a local gun shop as the intermediary. would cost a few bucks, but might be worth it for your peace of mind.

you would meet the "buyer" at the shop, transfer the gun from yourself to the shop, and then they sell it to him.

might as well ask your local shops what they'll give you for the gun first.

sell it face to face and require a ccw permit and drivers license for sale , now you know at least the person who bought it passed a background check to get their ccw permit .

I like this idea.

Thanks.

According to the employee behind the counter, it was ATP gun shop, Summerville SC. He received a call from a CSM or some other manager at a WM store about 15 miles away, letting them know they were on their way to his store to make a buy...and the guy was at the counter trying to buy all their ammo while he was on the phone. The WM employee knew for a fact it was an ATP employee. The WM employee refused the sale.

ATP will never again get my business. Neither will Cheaper Than Dirt...

I know for a fact ATP did it in 2008. I purchased 3 boxes of Hornady self defense ammo for my Browning HP. They didn't even pull off the Wal Mart price sticker. Just covered it up with their own sticker for an additional few $.


EDIT: From what I have found, the 3 box limit is widespread, not due specifically to the actions of the local gun store mentioned in my post above. Still, the actions of ATP are no less underhanded.

It's possible to bump fire any semi-auto weapon to simulate full auto fire. It's all in the way the gun is held so it oscillates back and forth and trips the trigger as it comes forward out of recoil. The only other way one could get full auto would be to do a bit of unauthorized work on the trigger assembly. There were probably enough Garands lying around that someone could swipe a second trigger assembly and modify it, then swap back and forth.

I seriously doubt that any experimental T series weapons ever made it into the war. General Hatcher in his books never mentioned it, and he was the one who would have known and authorized it.

In the end, the M14 was uncontrollable in full auto, even with the straight line stock they came up with. The BAR was quite a bit heavier and easier to control. I had the opportunity to fire one full auto in the service once.

Anybody bought a new Marlin 336 in the last few months? Lot's of chatter about the quality going to hell after the Remington buyout. I looked at a 336W at Dicks the other day and the fit and finish of the wood and metal didn't look to bad to me. I guess they have been making improvements. The action did seem stiff, but not rough. Of course I wasn't able to cycle rounds through it.

Any personal experience with a recent purchase out there?

Maybe have a dealer sell it for you, so that the purchaser goes through the NICS background check? A local shop sells guns and charges either 10 or 15% commission, so that's better than simply selling to a dealer outright.

Unless you live in NY from what I understand.

Quote:
As a result of the NY SAFE Act of 2013, effective immediately, all NY customers purchasing any CMP rifles, to include the M1 Garand, to be delivered in NY must have the rifle shipped to a NY licensed FFL dealer in NY for compliance with SAFE Act requirements. Copy of dealer’s license and shipping information must be provided with rifle orders. Ammunition orders may still be shipped directly to the customer for the remainder of 2013.

The local shop just got a Baer in. Its the first one I've seen in person. Lots of Browns, Nighthawks and Wilsons in the area but not Baers. How do you like it?
